This score is not a typo: The United State's Women's National Team defeated Thailand 13-0 in the United States' World Cup opener against Thailand.

Who said soccer is a low-scoring sport?

Tuesday's "contest" marked the largest blowout in Women's World Cup history.

The Americans out-shot Thailand 40-2 and had 73 percent of the possession.

The United States held a modest 3-0 lead through the first half. In the second half, the United States scored 10 times.

Alex Morgan led the charge for the United States by scoring five goals on Tuesday. Morgan's left-footed boot in the 87th minute tied the World Cup record for most goals by a player in a single game.

The US returns to action on Sunday against Chile.
